History of Lewisburg
The town of Lewisburg began in 1872 when the Nashville and Owensboro railroad line was being surveyed and graded from Central City to Russellville. Prior to 1872 a nearby village called Henrysville, which was named after S. J. Henry and located one mile south of Lewisburgs present location, served the area. It consisted of a post office, the postman was William F. Henry, and a few stores. Mr. Henry named the town.
The new town of Lewisburg was laid out on land purchased from Asa Hardinson by Mr. Henry. The new town would be located close to the railroad and so named for Eugene. C. Lewis, a Civil Engineer for the railroad company.
